|Just a few miles outside of Astoria is the shipwreck of the Peter Iredale.|
Astoria is often considered the northernmost town of the Oregon coast, though technically Astoria is located on the Columbia River close to where it enters the ocean rather than on the coast itself. Astoria is an interesting mix of rough around the edges port town and historic collection of Victorian homes. There is a lot to do and see in Astoria and travelers will want to start their Oregon coast vacation in Astoria.

When you travel, do you always buy travel insurance? I’ll be honest, we travel frequently and yet we rarely purchase travel insurance. Now I am not in any way suggesting you should forego buying trip insurance. It’s always a good idea. However, if you are like us and occasionally travel without insurance, you should know if something happens you may still have protection, which is why I’m sharing with you the time we had to cancel our international travel plans for medical reasons and learned we were unknowingly covered by trip cancellation and trip interruption protection through our Chase credit card.

|Hans Christian Andersen, the son of Odense.|
Odense is the third largest city in Denmark, but to put that into a little bit of perspective, Odense has a population of just over 172,000, between that of Jackson, Mississippi and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. There is one main reason to visit Odense, and that is Hans Christian Andersen. Hans Christian Andersen is one of the most famous celebrities to ever come out of Denmark and Odense’s claim to fame is that Odense is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen.

|View of the Columbia River Gorge from the Portland Women's Forum State Scenic Viewpoint.|
One of the most beautiful days you can spend in Oregon is driving through the Columbia River Gorge. The Columbia Gorge, just a few miles east of Portland, is a long canyon cut through by the Columbia River. The Columbia Gorge has historical significance. Lewis and Clark paddled down the Columbia River. The Columbia River Highway was built in the early 1900s and was one of the first paved roads in the Pacific Northwest. Today there is also a major highway that travels through the Columbia River Gorge, but sightseers will want to avoid the interstate and instead follow the slower Historic Columbia River Highway, making stops along the way to enjoy the views, waterfalls, and trails.

As I have mentioned before, after a multi-year hiatus, Romeo and I have started venturing back into Baja. Our first Baja adventure was joining a Baja food tour. We then traveled to Tijuana for a dinner at Misión 19, had a weekend getaway in Rosarito, staying at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, and then crossed the border again to spend an afternoon drinking wine at AlXimia in the Valle de Guadalupe.
